Quick Overview:

The pure white flowers of China Snow smother this tree in late April creating a stunning show. The round to oval-rounder, thick summer leaves are glossy and green giving way to a creamy yellow fall display. On older trees the furrowed bark accentuates the attractive outline of curved trunks throughout the winter months.
